Laura Ingraham: George Will's column on Pence was 'beneath him'

Fox News commentator Laura Ingraham said on Friday that conservative columnist George Will’s critical column about Vice President Pence was “beneath him.”

“I like George Will. A lot of people don’t like George Will who watch this show. I actually like him. I’ve known him for a long time,” Ingraham said on her Fox News show. “And it pains me to say this, but I thought the column was beneath him and filled with low blows and not at all in any way illustrative of the man who Mike PenceMichael (Mike) Richard PenceThe Fed really is ‘crazy’ for undercutting Trump recovery Hillicon Valley: Russia-linked hackers hit Eastern European companies | Twitter shares data on influence campaigns | Dems blast Trump over China interference claims | Saudi crisis tests Silicon Valley | Apple to let customers download their data Dems blast Trump for 'conflating' Chinese, Russian election interference claims MORE is. And he’s a wonderful person and I think a very effective vice president.”

Will’s Washington Post column argued that Pence is now “the worst person in government” for his willingness to do whatever it takes to praise and agree with Trump.

"Judging by the number of times Pence announces himself 'humbled,' he might seem proud of his humility, but that is impossible because he is conspicuously devout and pride is a sin," Will wrote.

Ingraham said that Will’s column was “sad” and “condescending about Mike Pence’s faith.”

“I found that from George Will really sad,” Ingraham said. “He’s had an unbelievable career as one of the premier columnists, writers in the United States."

But I thought it was filled with such low blows. And I wasn’t even angry about it. I was actually sad about it,” Ingraham added.
